This paper reflects on attributes of a workshop on biosensor innovation pathways. Workshop visuals showing multiple interconnections resonated less with the scientist participants than those presenting more linear and business oriented information. Workshop discussions suggested two innovation pathways for biosensors, one involving passive use of nanomaterials in biorecognition and the other involving active use of nanomaterials in signal transduction.
